Today I'm going to be talking about the Dr. Young Protect Prevent BB Creams! These BB Creams were kindly sent to me for review by Roseroseshop!
Peach colored BB cream provides clear skin tone with UVA/UVB protection.
Triple Action : wrinkle care, whitening and UVA/UVB protection, Triple Action BB cream covers and moisturizes skin.
2P Pearl Brightening Balm makes suntanned, Dark skin look natural and healthy. SPF 35/ PA++There are three different BB Creams with three different functions. The lightest shade is a brightening base, the middle shade is the main BB Cream while the darker shade can be used for contouring, or as the main colour depending on your skintone.
Here are the swatches of all three shades swatched together, all three are too dark for me sadly, but since I am on the lighter end of the spectrum these will most likely be suitable for light to medium skintones, I think.
The closest match to my skintone is the Bemish Base, although this is a peach toned base. I found this BB Cream really easy to apply with brushes, sponges or cushion puffs.
It provides very minimal coverage, but does smooth out my pores really nicely!It's definitely a completely different colour to the rest of my body, so sadly I wasn't able to do a wear test as I can't wear this out in public without looking like I'm really wearing the wrong shade of foundation which is embarrassing.
I did however try out the darkest shade as a contour/bronzer. It looks terrible against the pink base, but it actually does work well for me as a contour, I just prefer my Chanel bronzer more.
Final ThoughtsIt really is hard for me to talk about these BB Creams considering they really aren't the right colour for me, I wasn't able to wear the lightest shade for any length of time due to it being completely the wrong tone for my skin, and I didn't want to try the two darker shades on my face because it just didn't feel right to me. I'm glad I had the opportunity to swatch these to show you what they look like, but aside from the Blemish Base being easy to apply and smoothing out pores, I really can't comment on anything else about these products.
